Grant will allow more students to visit Mammoth Cave

MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky. – Congressman Brett Guthrie announced Monday that the National Park Foundation Open OutDoors for Kids program is awarding a grant to Mammoth Cave National Park to help give local students a chance to visit the park.

Guthrie says the $10,000 grant will be used to connect 2,000 fourth graders from nearby elementary schools to Mammoth Cave for field trips.

The Congressman also said this grant money will allow kids to enjoy STEM activities at the park, go on scenic hikes, and take a ranger-led cave tour.
